Subject: [PATCH] arm64: fix pte_unmap() -Wunused-but-set-variable

Many compilation warnings due to pte_unmap() compiles away. Fixed it by
making it an static inline function.

mm/gup.c: In function 'gup_pte_range':
mm/gup.c:1727:16: warning: variable 'ptem' set but not used
mm/gup.c: At top level:
mm/memory.c: In function 'copy_pte_range':
mm/memory.c:821:24: warning: variable 'orig_dst_pte' set but not used
mm/memory.c:821:9: warning: variable 'orig_src_pte' set but not used
mm/swap_state.c: In function 'swap_ra_info':
mm/swap_state.c:641:15: warning: variable 'orig_pte' set but not used
mm/madvise.c: In function 'madvise_free_pte_range':
mm/madvise.c:318:9: warning: variable 'orig_pte' set but not used

Also, remove pte_unmap_nested() as nobody uses it anymore since the
commit ece0e2b6406a ("mm: remove pte_*map_nested()").
